*edit*

I've just found out the actual cause
if you enter "topgear.com" in your browser it goes to radio times but if you enter "www.topgear.com" it goes to the proper Top Gear site, not sure if they've doubled up on the navigation or something... (since Radio Times is actually a BBC site)

Anyway, thanks either way.

(this is after 3 spyware scans a a virus scan, only to find out it was this!)

1 spyware scan later and its working fine, sorry for the muck up.

Weird about the spyware, only ran another spyware scan recently...

How many times can I use the word spyware in a post? :)

Thanks all

Seems they fucked up their DNS entries (or their server):

I'm going to use this off-topic moment to say that I like Gibby's picture of Mark Evans' Landy. :thumbsup:

A 4x4 Is Born was a great show!
